Vision screenings were part of the second annual Health Disparities Conference on March 10. Organized by Barbara Wallace, a professor of health education, the conference uses research to draw attention to the inequities of health care access throughout the world and to develop ways to ameliorate it. This year, the focus was on holistic approaches to health disparities, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and an emphasis on the use of research and evidence accumulation in public health. The keynote speaker was Cornel West, Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University.
